  • Drug Discovery Group

    Barbara Slusher, M.A.S., Ph.D., leads a 20-member veteran drug discovery team of medicinal chemists, assay developers, pharmacologists, toxicologists and pharmacokinetic/drug metabolism experts, who identify novel drug targets arising from JHU faculty’s research and translate them into new, small molecule drug therapies.

    Her team collaborates extensively with faculty at the Bloomberg~Kimmel Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy and leads the BKI immunotherapy drug discovery core, aimed at developing new immune-targeting drug therapies for laboratory and clinical testing at Johns Hopkins.

  • Le Cancer Metabolism Research Lab

    Dr. Anne Le's research primarily focuses on cancer metabolism and metabolic aspects of other diseases. Using metabolomics technologies, her work has led to breakthrough discoveries revealing several characteristic features of the metabolism of cancer. One of these, the dependence of cancer cells on glutamine metabolism, has translated into clinical trials as a novel therapy for cancer patients. Furthermore, her lab tracked the metabolic pathways in the remaining tumor cells after this novel therapy and identified the best-suited drugs for combined synergistic therapy. The depth of Dr. Le's expertise in cancer metabolism, in collaboration with other experts at Johns Hopkins, will lead to improved outcomes for cancer therapy.
